John Garfield KIRKPATRICK
By Mary CALDER, Helen KIRKPATRICK, Margaret KIRKPATRICK, Monday, January 3, 2005 - Page A14
Son, brother, husband, father, uncle, friend, accountant, tennis player, volunteer. Born February 16, 1950 in London, Ontario Died October 30, 2004, in Ottawa, of cancer, aged 54.
John KIRKPATRICK was our brother, the only son of Eileen and Garfield KIRKPATRICK of London. We grew up in a close-knit household that highly valued extended family. We regularly travelled to Mount Forest, Ontario, to spend weekends and holidays with our Dad's family. One of our happiest childhood memories is taking The Canadian to Alberta to visit with our Mother's family, a bold adventure for the time! John was the quiet one at family gatherings, but he was an active player whether in canasta tournaments at Grandma's on Saturday nights, on the family Christmas "human pyramid" team or on camping trips to parks across Canada with his children, his nephews and nieces, sisters and brothers-in-law.
Growing up, John spent every summer at our Uncle Jim's farm in Mount Forest. He cherished this move from an urban, sister-dominated world in London to the rural, male world where he helped with farm chores and even had his own calves -- a boy's dream world! The lifelong bond between John and his cousin, Mervyn, was formed during these happy summers.
Dad was so proud when John became an accountant, following in his own footsteps. When Dad became ill during one busy income tax season, John took time from his own accounting work to return to London to run Dad's business.
John's life was blessed when he met and married Hélène PICARD and was welcomed into that close-knit family. He worked to become proficient at French, the first language of his in-laws. He was an important member of their family, and ours.
John's three children, Kevin, Nora and Lynn, were precious to him. It was especially hard for John when, as a young father, he developed multiple sclerosis and was not even strong enough to lift his young son. John battled with everything he had. Years later, when facing lymphoma, he told his wife, Hélène, that he had negotiated a deal with God at that time. He asked for three years, time enough to see what kind of person his new daughter, Nora, might become.
The multiple sclerosis went into remission, a remission that lasted the rest of his life. John credited his fighting spirit to our mother. Her belief, that there is a silver lining behind every cloud, helped him to pursue that silver lining. Her positive attitude and commitment to health and fitness inspired his own quest for a healthy life.
The energy that John invested in becoming healthy gave him the gift of many years. During those 20 years, he spent endless hours with his children -- cycling, roller-blading, playing ball, ping-pong, and cards, travelling, camping, reading, and cooking. He modelled the healthy lifestyle he wanted them to emulate; he saw them become adults. As well, John worked diligently as a volunteer for the multiple sclerosis society. He was a valued employee, a loyal friend, an active member of his tennis club.
This past summer, John faced another battle: lymphoma. Again, John fought with everything he had. He believed he would make it and his family believed he would, but it could not be so. Surrounded by family -- his wife, children, sisters and in-laws he died on October 30. The last words he heard were Nora's, "We love you, Dad." He closed his eyes and passed away.
John was a special person. Along with his many successes and celebrations, he also faced trials, sadness and difficulty. He met challenges with a positive attitude and looked for the silver lining. John was a good person, a gentle man, a fighter -- and a special brother.
Mary, Helen, and Margaret are John's sisters.

'Big Lou' played hoods to the hilt
Comedian became familiar face on Canadian television
'Always a cigar in his mouth, like a gangster': Brother
By Patrick EVANS, Staff Reporter
As a professional wrestler, he made his opponents scream in pain. As a comedian with Wayne and Shuster, he made Canada scream with laughter.
Louis " Big Lou" PITOSCIA, the ultimate cigar-chomping bruiser, died peacefully last Thursday at the age of 76. His career saw him move from professional wrestling in the Maple Leaf Gardens of the 1940s to playing tough-guy roles in movies and television.
But he's best remembered for decades of sketch comedy send-ups of gangsters, hoods and prison inmates as a regular on Johnny Wayne and Frank Shuster's Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television show.
With his trademark fedora and cigar, PITOSCIA lived his bully image to the fullest. "Oh, big cigars he smoked. Always a cigar in his mouth, like a gangster," said his brother James, 78.
But PITOSCIA had no problem playing against type if it got a laugh. The men on Wayne and Shuster's show used to dress up in drag as an all-female band. The camera would cut to PITOSCIA on the piano, wearing a black dress with a frilly collar and brooch, a grey wig tied back in a bun -- and, of course, a cigar in his mouth.
At the funeral home yesterday, he lay in the casket with a rosary and a fresh cigar in his hands.
PITOSCIA was born to Italian immigrant parents in Toronto on November 11, 1928, one of five children. When he hit his teens, he was, as James put it, "a lot of trouble. He didn't take crap from anybody."
PITOSCIA figured out at a young age how to land a punch.
"I know at school he used to beat the kids up," James said. "Then the schoolteacher gave him a strapping. He stopped after that. He turned out to be a good guy."
During his wrestling career, PITOSCIA adopted a bad-guy persona in the ring. It was a good rehearsal for the series of hoods and gangsters he would play in his four decades as an actor.
When he retired from wrestling in the early 1950s, he weighed 280 pounds, had a 60-inch chest, a 48-inch waist, and a 19.5-inch shirt collar.
In a 1960 interview with the Toronto Star, PITOSCIA said his inspiration for leaving wrestling for show business was Mike Mazurki, a wrestler who jumped ship for Hollywood. In 1951, Mazurki invited PITOSCIA to Los Angeles. On that visit, PITOSCIA landed a bit part in the movie My Favorite Spy, starring Bob Hope and Hedy Lamarr.
For Big Lou, there was no turning back. "I was sort of a hood in it. I got killed," he told the Star. "Anyhow, that experience gave me confidence in my hidden talents, see."
But Hollywood couldn't seduce PITOSCIA. His family says he was determined to make it as an actor with Canada as his home base. It was something he had in common with Wayne and Shuster, who turned down offers in the United States, remaining defiantly Canadian throughout their careers.
PITOSCIA's work with Wayne and Shuster, including some appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show, led to more roles on television and commercials.
"The time I was on The Ed Sullivan Show," he said in 1960, "I had to get knocked through a lousy brick wall. Out of my pay, they took 53 bucks tax. Fifty-three bucks they charge to let you fall through a crummy wall."
PITOSCIA never worried about being typecast. "He was happiest when playing the godfather roles," said his niece, Rosemary CORRENTE.
It was a role he loved to play, even when the cameras stopped rolling. CORRENTE remembers as a young woman bringing a date over for dinner. She laughs at the memory of Uncle Lou sitting down with the young man and pulling out a switchblade.
"He started cleaning his nails with the switchblade and said, 'So, what are your intentions with my niece'?" CORRENTE said. "He never came back for dinner, that guy."
Relatives remember PITOSCIA for his hulking mass, booming voice and devotion to family. "As tough as he was, he had a big, soft heart," CORRENTE said.
Rosanna PICCININNI- FERRONI, another niece, said as a little girl she was always excited when Uncle Lou visited. "He would pick me up with one hand," he said. She would perch there on his giant open palm.
"He never had kids," she said, explaining why PITOSCIA showered a father's love on his nieces and nephews. "We always knew if we were in a bind, we could go to Uncle Lou."
PITOSCIA married in the 1960s. His wife Jill died about 30 years later. After she was gone, he wouldn't let anybody use her rocking chair. "Anybody who sat in it, he would say, 'Hey, that's my wife's chair,'" James said.
Back in 1960, when he finished that interview with the Star, PITOSCIA ordered the reporter back for one more word.
"You newspaper guys are always spelling my name wrong," he said. "It's P-I-T-O-S-C-I-A. It ain't Pistachio like you're always writing. That's a nut."
In addition to his brother James, PITOSCIA leaves a sister, Lucy PICCININNI. A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. today in the chapel of The Simple Alternative Centre, 1535 South Gateway Rd., in Mississauga.

100 years of memories
The area has lost five centenarians in the last few weeks, but they all left loving legacies.
By Debora VAN BRENK, Free Press Reporter
Carmela Maria FARRUGIA never had many material possessions but, in raising her 10 children, she had all the riches of the world. By the light of kerosene lamps she would knit, play piano and cook for her family in Malta. If any young ones fussed, she would pop a chocolate sweet into their mouths.
She loved chocolate all her life, eldest son Frank says. Eating it or sharing it, she took equal pleasure from both.
Last week, her family opened boxes of chocolates for those who paid their respects to the family matriarch at London's Donohue Funeral Home. "I knew she would do the same," Frank says.
When FARRUGIA died March 6 at the age of 106, she was likely the oldest person in the region.
In the last 10 days, Southwestern Ontario has lost the collective wisdom and guidance of five centenarians.
They were born before radio, automobiles and airplanes.
They grew up without electricity, raised families when cars were a luxury and retired as colour televisions became commonplace.
And they lived long enough to glimpse the future -- animal cloning, cellphones, climate change -- though their great-grandchildren's eyes.
Until this month, they were among the 3,795 Canadians to have lived 100 years or more.
Census data show a Canadian baby born today can expect to live 78 years.
The life expectancy for a Canadian child born in 1898 isn't known because it wasn't tracked then.
But if U.S. data have any parallel here, consider this: the life expectancy for an American baby born in 1900 was 46 years.
Here, then, a glimpse into some local lives lived well:
The pace of her last 51 years never quite matched that of Anna MISHCHENKO's first half-century.
And that was just fine with her, says her youngest son, Tony MISHCHENKO.
Born in Russia in 1903, MISHCHENKO survived the horrors of the First World War.
Then, when the 1917 Russian Revolution turned the country upside-down, she and her husband were on the "wrong" side; they lived under assumed names in a new regime with a long memory.
Then came famine. Then the Second World War.
They fled Russia with their three sons and, after a five-year stopover in Belgium, arrived in Canada in 1951.
"Canada is where they found peace, freedom. But on the other hand, they were lonely" to be so far from home.
But MISHCHENKO says there was larger purpose in all his mother did: "All her life was to preserve her family.
"This was her life," he says.
She found comfort in church and in the Bible: The epic film The 10 Commandments was her favourite movie.
And the world stopped whenever the western Bonanza came on television. "She would say, 'Boy, these guys are just like the (Ukrainian) Cossacks. They're tough and they're brave.' "
She doted on all the generations that followed hers.
"Her children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her joy."
Carmela FARRUGIA
Francesca DI FABRIZIO, born in Italy in 1901, was the glue that kept her family strong.
Sometimes she would tell stories of her childhood, when 20 family members would live in the same home, daughter Anna PICCOLI says.
Her three daughters grew up and married and moved to Canada. They persuaded Francesca and her husband, Filippo -- "the only man for me," she always said -- to come here in 1968.
Though she couldn't speak much English, she easily made Friends and earned strangers' respect.
"Nonna," as the children and grandchildren called her, stayed with her daughters and their families until moving to a nursing home 15 months ago.
Maria ZIMMERMANN says her grandmother loved to dress up, prayed for everyone and never failed to stash chocolates in her room for the grandchildren.
"She had a sparkle in her eye and she exuded love."
Harvey MILLER
Whether teaching young farm kids or volunteering with the Rodney Kiwanis Club, where he was a charter member, Harvey MILLER was a gentleman and a scholar, says daughter Marilyn RUMBLE.
"His life was helping people."
MILLER was born on a farm near Rodney in 1902. He taught in a rural school, then became principal, for two decades, of Rodney public school.
Rumble recalls how music was always part of their lives -- MILLER played piano and organ in two churches, starting at age 12 -- and how she once sang at a political nomination meeting for Paul Martin, Sr.
MILLER "had a real nice way with people," from his Friendship with Martin to his mediation help with immigrant families, she recalls.
He was married for more than 70 years to Wilden, who died in 1997, and helped raise three daughters.
RUMBLE planned to sing Promise of Joy at the funeral: "Now we celebrate his life."
Carmela FARRUGIA
In 1946, Carmela FARRUGIA's husband, John died, leaving her to raise 10 children alone. The youngest was six.
But where others might have despaired, she filled their home in Malta with music, hope and learning, son Frank recalls.
She made sure all her children -- eight remain -- had the chance to attend private schools.
"She was a very proud woman that she could raise 10 children without a father," Frank says.
And in 1958, at 60, she left Malta for Canada, where Frank had found work.
"She loved it here," with the flowers and the space, Frank recalls.
Of the many world changes that took place in her life, airplanes fascinated FARRUGIA most.
And even when hip problems forced a move into Marian Villa, she kept a protective eye on her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
And always, her faith and family -- and her chocolates -- sustained her.
"She was a very happy lady," Frank says.
Century Club
Five London-area residents older than 100 have died this month:
- Carmela Maria FARRUGIA- SANTANGELO, 106, died March 6 in London.
- Francesca DI FABRIZIO was 103 when she died in London on March - Harvey MILLER of Rodney died a week ago, age 102.
- Idella DEMERS, 102, died last Thursday in Wallaceburg.
- Anna MISHCHENKO, 101, died last Monday in London.
